Description

Assam Tea Hathikuli Organic TGBOP

The Hathikuli Estate has long history with the Smith's; Back in the 1950's Mr Stammers used to take the family out on day trips via elephant to visit the Hathikuli Estate's Manager, who was a good friends of the Family as they only lived 20 miles away from the Behora Estate. Janet Smith, the daughter of Mr Stammers says that she remembers sitting on the bungalow's veranda and watching animals such as Tigers and Rhinos from the Kaziranga National Park. The name 'Hathikuli' drives from the Assamese word for 'Frequent Elephant', which translates into a place that is frequently visited by elephants. Adjoining the Kaziranga National Park, the site falls into two districts; Golaghat & Karbi-Anglong and produces Organic Green Tea, Orthodix Tea and CTC.

History- Due to the closeness of the Kaziranga National Park which is a World Heritage Site the Estate made the decision to go Organic in 2007, but wasn't completed until 2011. The organic status of the Estate has led to an increase of natural predators that feast on various pests that may blight the Tea plant. The transformation to organic has even increased the soil structure and the number of earth worms in the Estate's soil, compared to other estates has increased- allowing for richer soil.
